Canadian organist Vincent Boucher continues his exploration of Tournemire’s complete organ music with Volume 4 of the cycle. The pieces that comprise the enourmous L’Orgue Mystique are organized in 51 sets, one for every Sunday and holiday of the liturgical year except Advent and Lent, when the organ remains silent. An ardent believer, Tournemire insisted on adding pieces for the holidays celebrating the Virgin Mary: the feasts of the Immaculate Conception, the Nativity of Mary, the Purification, and the Assumption.
“To undertake this recording project is to face an unsuspected and gigantic quantity of music: 253 pieces of L’Orgue mystique, the symphonies, the poems, the collections... It is also to find oneself in the presence of music that is innovative, mystical and poetic,” says Vincent Boucher.
